What to do next? Injectors

I just ohm tested the my injectors because the truck just doesn't seem to be running like it used to, on the one of the four sets, I only tested two sets so far because its too much work for how sore I am.. . But on the one set I pulled 4.3 ohms and on the injector closest to the firewall I pulled 7.4. What do I do from here, this is pretty new to me

Well if it's the one in your picture of your signature with 550k miles and those are injectors from factory I would imagine it's time to change them.

Lol it is, but that's probably true. Just a lot of money for a college kid, just trying to see what can be done so that I can make them last until the money is here. Until summer I'm liven on my saved money

Could always look into getting them rebuilt. Much cheaper than buying new.

Anywhere that'd rebuild them to stage ones for not much more, I planned on upgrading anyway one day? I just know they are like $1200 new, that's if you give them cores..

I have seen rebuild kits for pre 99 7.3 that increases flow to 160cc. But I have no idea how good they are or anything. Sure someone here done it though.
